CCE Celebrates Inaugural Graduating Class from new Zero Carbon Engineering Course
The School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering has marked the successful first completion of its new Postgraduate Certificate in Zero Carbon Engineering with a tree planting ceremony and social event with its graduating class.
The postgraduate certificate, which focuses on a range of key areas within zero carbon and applied renewable energy, was delivered to more than 30 students, in partnership with the Department for the Economy, who have supplied funding for the programme.
Professor Chris Johnson, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Engineering and Physical Sciences at Queen's (pictured left) also joined Tony Schmidt (right) for the tree planting ceremony.
Professor David Rooney, Director for the PGCert in Zero Carbon Engineering course commented:
“I’m delighted to celebrate with our first graduating class who have taken on the PGCert in Zero Carbon Engineering – these graduates are now equipped with the latest knowledge and skills which are critical in helping us to achieve local, national, and international net zero carbon targets, and as such, will now be exceptionally employable across a range of sectors. The planting of this pear tree within the grounds of the David Keir Building here at Queen’s will allow us to ensure that we always remember these trailblazing students, and allows them to leave their mark on the Queen’s campus – we hope to have many more students follow in their footsteps, and contribute to the zero carbon agenda.
I wish to congratulate all of our graduating students, and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.”
